Food was delicious. It was a crowded and busy Saturday night so there was normal dining noise but overall a very positive energy. I would definitely recommend this spot.

Every time I’m in Georgetown I find a reason to eat at Das. The food is amazing and the service is always on point. If you’ve never had Ethiopian cuisine, Das is a great place to try it; order one of the samplers, or just ask for recommendations and try a variety of different dishes. You really can’t go wrong. I’m already looking forward to returning to Das for another amazing meal.

We loved the food! Appreciate being able to try the wine, also awesome that servers took the time to check in and point out all the different delicious items in the vegetarian sampler! Had a lovely outside patio (raining so we couldn't sit out there but inside was nice as well!)

There are so many Ethiopian places in the DMV, and this is very much among the best. And a Michelin star too! Delicious food, generous portions (including refills of injera throughout the meal), attentive service, and an all around great experience. Hope to be back for the next special occasion!

This was our first time dinning at Das Ethiopian. Upon arriving we were greeted with smiles and ushered into a tastefully decorated dining room. Beautiful jazz music filled the space as we enjoyed mimosas and delicious Ethiopian coffee. We are trying to move away from meats; so it was the vegetarian dishes that thoroughly delighted. If you are familiar with this type cuisine you are aware of injera (Ethiopian bread) that is used to eat the meal with your fingers. But, if needed utensils are supplied. Sambusa was our appetizer that was baked in a very thin crust. We found the house and tomato salad with fresh vegetables combined to accentuate our taste buds. For entrée’s we chose the gomen (collard greens) and the eggplant dish. Suffice it to say, each dish was a delicious balance of flavors that made this experience one of the best we’ve had in the District. We were not hurried but relished the opportunity to enjoy conversation and the view of bustling Georgetown as we waited in anticipation of the next amazing dish.
